Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. Thanksgiving and politics. Oy.

The shooting thrust Dallas into the national conversation on the … [Read more...] about Former Dallas officer indicted in black man’s death
SHOPPERS flooded Britain's high streets today in one of the busiest Christmas shopping days of the year. The intense spending spree comes at a time when some sceptics say online retail is killing traditional in-store shopping. But today is said to be one of the busiest periods on the high street so far in 2018 - while Black Friday (November 23) currently takes the top spot. Some retail leaders are warning of the 'death of the high street', including retail mogul Mike Ashley, who bought House of Fraser after it went into administration this year. Several other big name bricks-and-mortar retailers have struggled in 2018 like Marks & Spencer, which announced the closure of 100 stores in May. And John Lewis also spoke of "challenging times" for its business after a whopping 99 per cent profit slide. Huge online retailers such as Amazon appear to have the upper hand over in-store shops as rising rents and business rates put traditional high street sellers under growing pressure. Some … [Read more...] about Thousands of Christmas shoppers pack out Britain’s high streets in one of busiest days of the year
